An experienced OC Realtor helps you get the most money for your luxury home even if you have already made some of the most common real estate blunders.
Painting a creative color
Creativity is great when it comes to artwork in your family room, but you want to avoid painting a crazy exterior paint color. The goal is to draw potential buyers with good curb appeal as opposed to drawing negative attention because of a purple paint. It’s also important to freshen up the entryway as part of the curb appeal factor.
Landscaping with a vision
Another mistake is to randomly plant bushes, trees or plants without knowing the stats about how tall the plant will grow or details about growing conditions. A potential buyer could know more than you do about the poisonous, invasive or non-native plants you grow too close your home. Also, a yard that seems too high maintenance often turns off potential buyers.
Fussing over a fireplace
Experts say some luxury home sellers spend too much money updating a fireplace even though the buyer could easily choose a completely different look for the fireplace surround or mantel. Before investing in high-end materials, consult with your Realtor about what sells in the OC real estate market.
Other mistakes that can cost you money when selling your Orange County, California home include outdated appliances, neglecting the little things such as windows, garbage disposal and lights and failing to deep clean. Also, few buyers want to buy a home that looks like an experiment in everything that’s trendy. Aim for a classic, neutral look with some character and touch of flair.
